Friday on the Farm

awaiting breakfast
A cow and her calf are in the barn where I live. The heifer calf is coughing and breathing a little difficulty, so we hauled the cow and calf out of the pasture to the barn so I can treat her. Once the calf is better, they will return to the pasture to graze.
The second morning in the barn, Orange 9 peeked out of a barn window and was awaiting her breakfast! Such a sweet face! She was making sure I was bringing her some corn and hay.

I love this picture so much, I made a 16 x 20 black and white print to frame and hang in my farm house <3

Friday on the Farm

soybean swelling
Dad planted a field of soybeans on Sunday. The soybeans were swollen we checked the field on Tuesday morning. Soon they will be pushing through the soil!
